New Names for Washington D.C. Eaglets

Staying in Washington D.C., we have an update on a pair of bald eaglets that now have names following an online contest. Their placeholder names were DC2 and DC3.

After getting the most votes, their permanent names are now Freedom and Liberty.

The other name pair choices were Stars and Stripes, Anacostia and Potomac, Honor and Glory and Cherry and Blossom. The eaglets hatched at the U.S. National Arboretum in March.
